Has the medical care in relation to your eyes fallen below the standard you should expect?
People are often told that they should take extra care with their eyes. Shouldn’t you expect the same from your eye surgeon, ophthalmologist; optician or specialist nurse? More and more these days we have people coming to us for an eye claim after treatment or care they have had has gone horribly wrong.
If you have an eye claim we can advise you fully and guide you through the claim process if we believe you have reasonable prospects of bringing a successful medical negligence claim.
What can we do to help with your eye claim?
An eye claim can be brought against anyone that has treated you, and must be brought to court within three years (in rare cases you can exceed this) of the date you first knew, or could reasonably have been expected to know, that you had suffered a significant injury caused by someone else’s negligent acts or omissions. In the case of a child the three years runs from their 18th birthday.
